NEWRY, Maine (AP) - Sometimes, the man of the family has to carry a lot --especially during a wife-carrying competition.
At the North American Championship over the weekend in Newry,Maine, 41 teams from 11 states competed on a 278-yard course thatincluded a muddy water hole and two log obstacles. First prize was
the wife's weight in beer, and five times her poundage incash.
The winners were Dave and Lacey Castro of Lewiston, Maine.They did the course in fewer than 55 seconds. It didn't hurt thatLacey weighs 97 pounds.
The Castro's are now eligible to take part in the WorldWife-Carrying Championships next July in Finland.
